My Students

I have the privilege of teaching students in every grade level in my school. Through my physical education class, I get the chance to help my students be physically active and learn about the many opportunities they have to stay healthy.

Create a safe and exciting learning environment for all of my students.

When my students come to my class, they are excited and ready to participate every time they enter the gym. My goal is to create an exciting learning environment for them, that allows them to be successful so they will enjoy physical activity as they get older. When students come to my physical education class I want to give them opportunities they may not get outside of the classroom. Creating these opportunities for my students won't just make a major impact in the classroom, but help create a life-changing experience for them as well.

My Project

Throwing and catching is a life long skill that all should learn.

Being able to obtain the yarn-balls for my classroom will be a great contributor to student learning and student success.

The versatility and durability of the yarn-balls helps create a variety of fun and intriguing lessons for my students to participate in. Having the many yarn-balls a part of the PE equipment helps provide more opportunities for the students during lessons and help create maximum participation for each of them as well.

Being able to help teach my students the basics of throwing and catching will make a major impact as they continue to grow and learn. This equipment will not only better my PE room, but help each and every one of my students gain a skill they will be able to keep for a lifetime.
